Free information and assistance with health care directives at Winona Health


Have you been putting off doing your health care directive? Here’s an easy way to check it off your to-do list! Winona Health Volunteers invite community members to a free informational program about health care directives (also called advance directives) on Monday, July 16, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Parkview Conference Room on the hospital first floor at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue in Winona.

The primary purpose of a health care directive is to allow people to stay in control of their care, even if they lose the ability to communicate. A properly completed health care directive is a legal document, but completing a directive does not require a lawyer. Winona Health Volunteers certified to facilitate this program will provide the authorized forms. Sessions cover health care directives for residents of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

A follow-up session will be held on Monday, July 30, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the same location for those who have attended a health care directives informational session but have questions or would like assistance in completing their directive or to have a facilitator review their directive.

There is no cost to complete a health care directive and the program is open to all. No advanced registration is required. Everyone age 18 and older is encouraged to complete a health care directive.

Certified health care directive volunteers are also available to give presentations to community groups. For more information, call the Winona Health Volunteer Services office at 507-457-4342.
